In most cases the printer driver software can have errors whilebeing in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC anduninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connectthe Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now checkthe printer properties to see the ink levels.
If you install copy of WIndows XP operating system, do not update it or get update it through internet as it will detect that you are using counterfeiting or pirated software. Just reinstall again the operating system and this time do not get update from internet when installing. Ever it pop up to your computer, just ignore it. Otherwise, that will appear.
What is your problem specifically? Is it that there is no hard disk detected when you try to install windows xp?
Try using third party software to detect the hard disk on your laptop Try this link. It will basically give you your hard drive driver while installing windows xp. You will also need an external floppy disk drive if you dont have diskette drive in your laptop.
Did you do a upgrade to vista from xp? Or is the computer with vista a different computer? The reason why I ask is if you did an upgrade the old drivers and software for xp may still be in the system. The first thing I would do is go into the device manager and remove the printer and un-install any software for the printer. Re-boot the computer and windows vista should detect the new hardware. I would let vista check online for the driver and install it. If it cant't find one the choose the driver you downloaded online. After that then try installing the printer software. Also make sure that when you go to print something that your printer is set up as the default printer.
I would boot in safemode (hold down f8 immediately when it starts (when it says Starting Windows xp), then delete all printers (associated with this) in device manager.
remove any printer software as well (add remove programs or start programs (printer program name, remove software IF listed),
also remove the port you are using in device manager be it lpt or usb. if the drivers siuggests installking without it connected do so, otherwise, just restart and it shoudl start installking the hardware amnd software it finds. be sure you have the correct drivers ready as well>
If you are running Win XP or Vista, you may wanna try the steps below:
1. Start > Control Panel 2. Printers and Faxes (for Win XP) - Printers (for Vista) 3. Click the "Add a printer" of the upper left hand corner of your screen. 4. Select Local Printer. 5. Connect your printer to the USB port and turn it ON. 6. Try to detect a Plug-n-Play (PnP) printer 7. If the printer is not detected as a PnP printer, run through the unstallation wizard and select the HP F300 series or F380 > Next 8. Run through the wizard until you finish the installation.
The steps above are the steps for installing the printer driver using the generic printer drivers that are already installed in every Windows computer .
If the generic driver will not work, you may download the driver through this link:

Installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not a straight-forward task as Windows XP does not recognize the SATA drive. In order to install operating systems such as Windows XP on SATA drives, the latest SATA drivers are required.Download SATA drivers for the motherboard from the website and integrate them with the XP installation CD using software such as nLite. SATA drivers can also be installed as third party drivers; you will be prompted during the installation process. Without proper SATA drivers, installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not possible as SATA mode would have to be disabled in the BIOS to continue with the installation.
Installing Windows XP on a Serial ATA hard drive is not an easy task, because the system does not recognize SATA drivers at startup. Windows XP Pro SP2 fares a little better with SATA drivers, but here is what can be done in cases where the driver is not recognized.
